Meet the Team


Chief Executive Officer



Elise Lindborg believes in magic.The kind of magic that only happens when people feel accepted, cared for, listened to and included. For over 20 years, these are the feelings she’s been creating for brands and their audiences. She approaches every new project and event with passion and creativity, which makes working with Elise truly magical. 

Elise is equal parts Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, and Finnish and spent her early lesbian years in Missoula, Montana.  Elise received her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Pacific Lutheran University. She continued her studies at the University of Washington where she earned two graduate certificates in public health and business. She holds another graduate certificate from Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business. Her ability to source promotional items that grab attention and get people talking are second-to-none. This go-get-it attitude has made her business an award-winning, LGBT-certified vendor that makes everyone feel important.
